and preventive clinics in our inner cities and our rural areas so people can have access to health care. the key is to control the cost and maintain the quality. to do that you need a system of managed competition where all of us are covered in big groups and we can choose our doctors and our hospitals across a wide range, but there is an incentive to control costs and i think there has to be -- i think mr. perot and i agree on this, there has to be a national commission of health care providers and health care consumers that set ceilings to keep health costs in line with inflation plus population growth. now let me say, some people say we can't do this but hawaii does it. they cover 98 percent of their people and their insurance premiums are much cheaper than the rest of america. and so does rochester, n.y. they now have a plan to cover everybody and their premiums are two-thirds of the rest of the country. this is very important. it's a big human problem and a devastating economic problem for america. to i'm going to send a plan do this within the first hundred days of my presidency. it's terr

under control in the city. so firefighters, which detroit needs because it's got, i think it must have the highest case of arson in the country, these guys are laid off. about two weeks later, 100 guys are rehired. when you look to find out where that money came from, it was actually the department of homeland security has a fund for things like that. and i don't want to overstate, but that's something you want to think about. the department of homeland security needed to step in to keep detroit as safe as it can be for the moment, it could be a lot safer. so we're talking about -- i wonder, and i wobbedered making this film, we've seen the auto industry bailout, we've seen the bank bailout. are we heading into an era of bailout the city? is there such a thing as a failed city? >> more with the detropia director heidi ewing. >> it's a great source of information for the public, so if you want to know anything about what's going on with legislation, with policy, c-span's got it covered. i like book tv, that's my forgave favorite. because i get to see different authors speaking around th
on the new york city school worship ban, which deals with off-hours churches and other religious groups meeting in those schools for worship. >> i am against it. >> i am, too, and i cannot understand it. this is just a personal comment, but it is bizarre to me that new york has dug his heels in and giving access to facilities on the same basis to religious groups that they do to other groups, and trying to focus on worship -- it is not talking about religion and just keeps on going. i should of thought they would have given up on that a long time ago. i do think it is a very bad idea. >> i think they have the constitutional authority, the city does, to do what it did. there is room for play where government can act to avoid establishment clause problems, and a thing that is what they did there. >> okay, last question. >> davis question on the mandate covered mine, so i will ask a follow-up on this -- new york is also where you did not have any religious representation at the 10th anniversary of the september 11 memorial service. are we getting to a point where we are so pluralistic reli
in the city of philadelphia that is going to energize turn out in the city. this could be a real sleeper on election night. >> let's move beyond pennsylvania. what would you think the romney campaign means to do? we are two weeks out. he may have a little momentum, but he's clearly struggling in a couple of key swing states. how does he conclude the sale? >> i'm not too sure there is much more that governor romney can do as a candidate at this point. obviously, try to take advantage of the cycle. just try to win the day. every day is a campaign and just try to win the day. have the stories be about him defending and you attacking as opposed to the other way around if we have a day like that, then i think he is winning today. and that is a good thing. if he can go day by day and be on the offensive, have obama explaining, have obama try to defend of tax -- fend off attacks. if this race gets turned around, that is when the momentum stops. the key is to stay on the offensive. i think it is highly likely that he can do that. he is the incumbent president because there's a lot more to attack

claimed that they were victims of reverse discrimination in the city of new haven, connecticut. next week, the supreme court will take up fisher vs. university of texas, which challenges whether the race of applicants can be used as a factor in granting admission to diversify the student body. that brings us to today's discussion. we gather here today with a distinguished panel to discuss the future of affirmative action. although affirmative action is a hot-button topic, and as i mentioned earlier, passion's tend to run amok when is the subject of the day, i am hoping to do a better job than jim lehrer and promised to keep our conversation civil and on topic. i am sure most of you are very familiar with our panelists, and if not, you have their biography in the handout. i would not insult your intelligence by reading what you can read for yourselves. however, i want to say by way of introduction that joining me today are debo adegbile, acting president and director of the naacp legal defense and education fund. if you want to come up and take your place. ward connerly, founder and presid
cities. what will it take and what will you do if elected to support job growth? >> thank you very much. thank you for everyone for being so hospitable. we have nearly 200,000 people unemployed in massachusetts. there are higher unemployment rates here in springfield. it is a serious problem. i look at this as a short-term and long-term problem. short-term, they should put people back to work. i was surprised when senator brown of voted against a three in a row that would have supported 22,000 jobs here in the commonwealth of massachusetts, would have prevented layouts, and policei n officers, it would have put construction workers back to work. why? it would have been an increase in taxes, not for most people, but for those who make a million dollars or more. making the investments in education, making the investments in research, and we make those investments together and build a future. that is what it will take over the long run to build a stronger future here in western massachusetts, all across the commonwealth, and all across the country. >> thank you. before i start, i want to t

have a religious freedom problem, go to your elected official, state legislator, city council, what have you, which is all well and good unless you are incapable of commanding a majority in that legislator, in which case you're out of law. -- legislature, in which case you are out of luck. when thinking about this in an historical context and looking back 50 years, not quite 50 years, 1965 was the conclusion of the council. the last document was the sort of monumental statement of the church on religious freedom and the inherent dignity of each and every person. it is not just about the rights of catholic individuals or the catholic faith or of institutions, it is about the rights of each and every human being to search for the truth, discern the truth, and here to the truth once they find it. that is an element of catholic that his intti sufficiently well known even among catholics. i think the -- that is insufficiently well known, even among catholics. i think the bishops are trying to change that. >> two things to me are quite clear. one is that on paper we are all in this countr
particular parts of cities have very few -- compared to other areas. the lines are much longer. it becomes much more difficult for people to be prepared to vote by saying in line for long periods of time. there are many different strategies in which they can operate by themselves or together that can make it much more confusing and difficult. is it really worth it? what will it mean for me anyway? of course, for students, their issues around student loans and affordable education and what is happening to state colleges and universities, public support for them, both at the state and federal support, a key budget decisions about supporting student education. those are essential for students, as well as the job market when they're graduating from school and what kinds of policies are out there. one of the big problems for women was when there were budget constraints. many public-sector jobs were being contracted and even layoffs with teachers and social workers and others who are largely women losing their jobs. women were hit in a double whammy way. they lost their jobs in the kinds of serv

[applause] >> i would agree, who is going to be most motivated to get out and vote. one of your observations, in the immediate aftermath of the primaries, the defeated candidates were not -- but they see more trouble now now that the race is close. it will be very interesting to watch what happens over the next couple weeks. now i would like to take some questions from the audience for our distinguished panel, our own town hall version of the program. >> you mean we have to talk to voters? [laughter] as those from the audience approach the microphones to ask any questions they mi
. if you look at these charts that we have distributed over the country, and people going from city to city, talking directly, and i can hear in my home town they will be talking in the next few days, directly to the people, and we need to get the american people alive and alert, because the typical person running for office is gone to do what ever it takes to get their vote. i do not think he has any sense at all that they want this fixed. if we have that at the grass- roots level, he would have these people with different personalities, being reborn, and they would be out on the campaign trail. >> both parties are responsible for our current problems. >> yes. >> governments have lost control of budget, and has waited too long to restructure, but it is not too late. the american people are smarter than most politicians realize. they know we are in trouble. they're willing to accept tough choices as long as they want it to be part of a comprehensive plan that they deemed to be fair. overwhelming support for comprehensive reforms in a range of areas where everything is on the table, minimum

. they see us saying, we need more space for their ally israel. they see president obama in new york city the same day -- instead of meeting netanyahu, goes on a daily talk show. when we say that these options are on the table, the secretary of defense walked them back. they are not changing their minds. that is what we have to do, change their minds. >> you both saw benjamin netanyahu hold up that picture of obama with a red line and talking about the red line being in spring. can you solve this? if you are elected, can you solve this in two months before spring and avoid -- >> we can debate the timeline. i agree that it is longer. we both agreed that to do this peacefully, you have to get them to change their minds. they are not changing their minds. >> the ayatollah sees an economy being crippled. 50% fewer exports of oil. the currency is going in the tank. he sees the economy going into free-fall. he sees the world totally united in opposition. the president has met him a dozen times. he has spoken to netanyahu as much as he has spoken to anybody. just before he went to the un, i was
. that worldview that says that america is a nation of exceptionalism. and we are to be that shining city on a hill, as president reagan so beautifully said, that we are a beacon of hope and that we are unapologetic here. we are not perfect as a nation. but together, we represent a perfect ideal, and that is democracy and tolerance and freedom and equal rights. those things that we stand for that can be put to good use as a force for good in this world. john mccain and i share that, and you combine all that with being a team with the only track record of making a really, a difference in where we've been and reforming, and that's a good team, it's a good ticket. >> senator? >> you're very kind suggesting my only achilles heel is my lack of discipline. >> others talk about my excessive passion. i'm not going to change. i have 35 years in public office. people can judge who i am. i haven't changed in that time. and, by the way, a record of change -- i will place my record and barack's record against john mccain's or anyone else in terms of fundamental accomplishments. wrote the crime bill, put 100,000
